At Go Direct Services, Our Special Offer on Denver Sewer Scope Inspections Saves You Money!
The $79 residential sewer scope and cleanout offer is a great price and right now it’s available to all residential customers in the areas we serve!
One of the most important steps Go Direct takes when arriving at your Denver area home is a plumbing camera inspection of your sewer lines. This allows us to look through your sewer lines with the plumbing camera, so we can tell whether the sewer backup is caused by tree roots, clogs, scale, cracks, debris, slope issues, bellies, sewer channels, or other issues in the sewer line.
Sewer Scope Denver Process to Diagnose Sewer Line Backups
To diagnose hidden sewer problems at your Denver home, Go Direct starts with a video inspection using a sewer camera pushed through your pipes on a sewer snake. Depending on where the backup occurs, we will run the sewer camera down branch lines (from sinks, showers, or bathtubs to the main line) or down the house’s main sewer line leading out to the street where it connects with the municipal sewer line.
Once we view your sewer lines with the sewer camera, we can pinpoint whether the sewer backup is being caused by:
- Tree Roots
- Clogs, Scale
- Slope Issues
- Sewer Channels
- Misaligned, Broken, Punctured, Off-Grade, or Corroded Pipes.
If the sewer camera finds a clog and can push through the obstruction, it will continue out to the main sewer line to see if there are additional problem areas. The sewer snake can then grab the clogs and pull them out. If the sewer camera finds buildup and debris, sewer jetting will be recommended.
If significant damage is found in the sewer line, technicians can use the transmitter on the sewer camera to prepare for excavation. Our technician stops the camera at the damaged area, then goes outside and waves a locating device until it picks up the transmitter’s signal. The area is marked so we know where to dig to replace the sewer line
Benefits of a Sewer Scope
Some of the problems that make a sewer scope and clean worthwhile include:
- Diagnosing causes for repeated drain clogs, backups, or slow drainage.
- Lost jewelry or other issues can also be addressed with a sewer scope.
- A sewer scope inspection and video record is also a smart idea when you’re thinking of purchasing one of our many older homes to make sure that expensive repairs don’t come up after closing.
Sometimes when Denver homeowners experience backups, unpleasant smells, slow drains, or clogs, they often try to fix things on their own first. Homeowners try plungers, drain cleaners, or the type of snake available in hardware stores to clear blockages without knowing the root cause of the problem. Without the benefit of a sewer camera this can cause additional damage to the sewer line and incurring more cost to repair. Take advantage of our sewer scope and cleanout special to save yourself time and money!
How a Sewer Camera Scope Works
You may still be wondering how a sewer scope works. Simply put, a sewer scope is a waterproof electronic camera on a flexible rod that lets a trained technician visually inspect your sewer lines and any other underground pipes that may be part of your home’s foundation. A flexible rod allows the sewer scope camera to travel through the pipe in real time—even around tricky turns or corners—so that your technician can see the condition of your pipes. Sewer scopes enable your Go Direct Services technician to diagnose any existing or potential problems with your line and suggest cost-effective, no-middleman solutions. The images captured by the sewer scope are saved and become part of your customer history.
Before you purchase a new home, consider doing a sewer camera inspection in addition to a routine home inspection to avoid problems and expensive repairs after you move in.
Plumbing Camera Inspection Cost in Denver
Plumbing camera inspection costs are far less than the cost of sewer repairs if problems go undetected. Sewer camera scope and cleanouts start at $79 for residential properties. There are some exceptions for larger properties with longer sewer lines or difficult access.
To diagnose problems Go Direct runs a plumbing camera through your pipes on a plumbing snake. We view the inside of the pipe on the screen of a handheld device. The plumbing camera picks up a variety of problems, including tree roots, misaligned, broken, punctured, off-grade or corroded pipes. The plumbing camera also identifies grease buildup, leaks, clogs, and obstructions.
We also offer plumbing camera inspections for prospective homebuyers who want to make sure the house they plan to purchase doesn’t have sewage problems. Just like a cost of regular home inspection, the cost of a plumbing camera inspection protects homeowners from costly, hidden problems after they move in.
If the plumbing camera finds a clog while doing the plumbing camera inspection, the plumbing snake can grab the clogs and pull them out. We call this a “Scope & Clean.” We can repeat the inspection after any service to verify the line has been properly cleaned or repaired.
